We require an inspirational and forward-thinking full time teaching assistant to join our Prep School. Some experience of working as a teaching assistant would be preferred.

You will be self-motivated, enthusiastic, a team player and able to use your initiative. A positive and flexible approach and a desire to work with young people are qualities we value highly.

This is an exciting time to become part of our dynamic team. Situated in the heart of Reading, St Joseph’s College is the leading independent day school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18 in Berkshire.

For us, success is about more than just exam results or awards. We celebrate each pupil as an individual, and aspire for them to leave St Joseph’s as mature and confident citizens, ready to tackle life head on with energy and vigour.  You will be fully supportive of the College Catholic tradition and expected to contribute to the full life of the School.
